Sara Walton - Inclusion Leader, Front Lawn Primary Academy

Location: Southern England

I have had the role of Inclusion Leader for the last 10 years. I am passionate about inclusive practice and meeting the differing needs of all children. I currently work in a primary school in Hampshire. As part of my role, I provide support for SEND to other academies within our group.

I have managed teaching assistants for several years, both at an individual level and as part of whole school deployment. I have experience in delivering training to teachers, teaching assistants and other groups of professionals within the children’s workforce. I also have an MA in Learning and Teaching.

I became a trainer for this programme as I believe that MITA and MPTA, offer schools practical and achievable strategies that ensure effective TA deployment.

I am available to deliver the Maximising the Practice of TAs training across the south of England.​
